I took a group of high school students out to visit the URDT girls school this summer. The program that has been put together helps these girls through empowering the total person. Not just giving them the academic and sustainable farming skills, but also building self knowledge, health, communication skills and world view. I saw first hand the positive changes this program was having for students, their families, and whole communities. We learned from and with their students and my students are forever changed and challenged to go out and be real change agents in the world
